'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

An Excessive Heat Watch will be in effect Sunday afternoon through Monday evening.

"The heat is going to get uncomfortable", said Mike Kennedy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Moon Township.

Friday's high is expected to be in the low 90s, but with a heat index of 100.

Check out chart below for expected highs on Sunday, compared with the normal high for this day during other years and the record highs.

Syracuse, Buffalo and cities in the NY and Vermont area could experience record heat on Sunday.

Rain is possible again Sunday, when things cool down a bit. Heat indices rose well above the air temperatures today, with some even eclipsing 100 at times.

The Weather Channel added that strong upper-level ridges of high pressures - or "heat domes" - contribute to the hot temperatures.

Several counties in the Triangle were under a heat advisory for much of Saturday because the high temperature in the mid-90s will feel much hotter when you factor in the humidity. "Drink plenty of water, use air conditioning or go to an air-conditioned place, and avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the periods of intense heat".

The heat index will be at or near 100 degrees across the Midwest and Northeast on Sunday. Heat index values as high as 99.

In Allentown, the record high temperature for July 1 is 97 degrees (a mark achieved in 1963, 1941, 1931).

Please note, extreme heat can cause illness and death among at- risk population who cannot stay cool. However, any storms look to stay mainly north and west of the I-95 corridor. Mostly sunny, with a high near 90.

Friday night will bring a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 10 p.m., the Weather Service said. All the heat and energy will give an increased chance for a few isolated thunderstorms as we head into the afternoon hours on Tuesday.
